Flowers That Last 6 Months or More!

They just showed these roses on the Today Show. The roses last 6 months! It is hard to get on the web site - probably because it was just on TV. I finally got on, so keep trying. The prices range from $7.95 to $182. Check it out

Here is an example:

The Only Flag That Doesn't Fly

A friend sent me this picture and I was just so moved by it! I will not add anymore description except for the description included in her email.

Between the fields where the flag is planted, there are 9+ miles of flower
fields that go all the way to the ocean. The flowers are grown by seed
companies. It's a beautiful place, close to Vandenberg AFB. 

Check out the dimensions of the flag. The Floral Flag is 740 feet long and 390 feet wide and maintains the proper Flag dimensions, as described in Executive
Order #10834. This Flag is 6.65 acres and is the first Floral Flag to be
planted with 5 pointed Stars, comprised of White Larkspur. Each Star is
24 feet in diameter; each Stripe is 30 feet wide. This Flag is estimated to
contain more than 400,000 Larkspur plants, with 4-5 flower stems each,
for a total of more than 2 million flowers.

It's just beautiful!

This is such a great idea! It is a living wreath of plants. It is fairly easy and not that expensive. You can use supplies you already have around the house.

The tutorial has many pictures so rather than copying the entire tutorial, here is the link:
